  1. Combine All-Bran, cranberries, apricots, coconut, sugar and milk in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 9 x 19cm (base measurement) loaf tin with oil. Line base and 2 long sides with 1 sheet of baking paper, allowing paper to hang over the edges of the tin.
